Naturalis added to Dutch Museum Gift Shop

Products from Naturalis have been added to Dutch Museum Gift Shop, making it the 13th museum to join the platform.

Naturalis Biodiversity Center is the Netherlands’ national research institute for biodiversity. Its mission is to describe, understand and preserve biodiversity without interruption from the outside world. Having been founded almost 200 years ago, the collection of Naturalis has expanded to fit over 40 million objects, spanning the domains of botany, geology, vertebrates, invertebrates, entomology, books and catalogs. A part of this collection can be admired in the recently renovated Naturalis museum. Divided into eight galleries, the museum acquaints visitors with themes as varied as dinosaurs, the Ice Age and reproduction.

Naturalis kicks off its addition to Dutch Museum Gift Shop with a diverse range of products: from botanical prints, fossiles and gemstones to stuffed animals and an umbrella.
